Ingredients: Descriptions and Photos
Grapefruit

(Grapefruit)  The traditional way of eating a grapefruit is to cut it in half (across the sections), use a knife to loosen the sections and eat it with a spoon, with or without sweetener.  I enjoy peeling the grapefruit, splitting the sections apart and eating the sections without any sweetener.  Choose grapefruit that are "heavy" and without any soft spots.  Minor blemishes, like the ones shown in this photo, do not harm the quality of the fruit inside.  See nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-6)
